This patient received a hair restoration at the Norwood 6 stage of baldness. With the use of head, beard and chest hair, Dr. U was able to create a very natural hairline and temples. According to Aesthetic Surgery Journal by Dr. U, nape hair is more suitable for natural hairlines.

However, not all patients have sufficient nape hair. Dr. U offers a FUE Shave Test that is used to determine if a candidate is a good fit. Usually to be suitable, a candidate must have finer head hair with potential for long term survival. In this case, the patient failed the Shave Test.

3189 grafts of head hair
803 grafts of beard hair
602 grafts of chest hair
Chest hair was combined with scalp hair to create the natural looking progression of hair thickness in the temples and hairline. Beard and head hair were used to fill in the sparse and empty areas throughout the top of the head and the crown.
